Octopuses are the undisputed darlings of the science internet, and for good reason. They're incredibly intelligent problem-solvers and devious escape artists with large, complex nervous systems. They have near-magical abilities to change colors, skin textures and shapes instantaneously,...
The seasonal filling and emptying of reservoirs in India can cause measurable deformation of the surrounding rock, reducing the strength of nearby faults and potentially triggering earthquakes, according to two new papers published in the Bulletin of the...
A unique combination of imaging tools and atomic-level simulations has allowed a team led by the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory to solve a longstanding debate about the properties of a promising material that can harvest...
Five centuries of over-exploitation has halved mammal populations in South America's Atlantic Forest -- according to new research from the University of East Anglia. A new analysis of mammal populations, published today in the journal PLoS ONE, has revealed...
When it comes to changing their passwords, bacteria are just as bad as you and me -- maybe even worse. A Carnegie Mellon University research team has found that despite 2.7 billion years of evolution, bacteria are still...
On a recent expedition to the remote Brazilian archipelago of St. Paul's Rocks, a new species of reef fish -- striped a vivid pink and yellow -- enchanted its diving discoverers from the California Academy of Sciences. First...
More than 26,000 years ago, sea level was much lower than it is today partly because the ice sheets that jut out from the continent of Antarctica were enormous and covered by grounded ice -- ice that was...
Genetic testing can play a substantial role in medical management by uncovering changes in genes that are associated with an increased risk for hereditary cancers. A new research study from investigators at UT Southwestern Medical Center strongly encourages...
New findings show that a micro RNA from the shoot keeps legume roots susceptible to symbiotic infection by downregulating a gene that would otherwise hinder root responses to symbiotic bacteria. These findings help us understand what it takes...
Termite colonies have been found to thrive and reproduce without males, new research from the University of Sydney reveals. The findings provide new evidence that males aren't required to maintain some advanced animal populations. They add momentum to questions...
